The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, an independent, research-driven graduate-level university focused on advanced energy and sustainable technologies, today announced that it has won three awards for research and development at the ADNOC Research '&' Development Academic Conference (ADRAC). The awards included the receipt of the R'&'D Shield by Masdar Institute for successfully securing funding from the ADNOC R'&'D, the R'&'D Research Top Ideas for the �Digital Rock Physics' project and R'&'D Research Top Ideas for the research project called �Smart Mud'. Two awards were received by Dr. Mohamed Sassi, Interim Dean of Faculty, while the third one was received by Dr. Irfan Saadat, Professor - Microsystems Engineering. At ADRAC 2014, the Masdar Institute faculty and students presented 11 scientific papers, focusing on future energy, including one co-authored with Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Abu Dhabi's Petroleum Institute, Supported by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) Operating Companies, the event, held from 24th-26th February in Abu Dhabi, hosted over 60 academic and research institutions and more than 2,000 attendees, attracting scientists, researchers, experts and students. The ADNOC Research '&' Development Academic Conference (ADRAC) gave professors and students an opportunity to network with industry experts and collaborate to find new solutions through effective research. Dr. Fred Moavenzadeh, President, Masdar Institute, said, "The awards and the number of scientific papers presented by Masdar Institute faculty and students reflect the magnitude of our research projects in advanced and sustainable technologies across the energy system, including the oil and gas sector. With the support of the U.A.E. leadership, we have established an institution that productively contributes to driving region-specific solutions. We foresee more industry collaborations enabled through forums such as the ADRAC International Conference '&' Exhibition." Masdar Institute has a number of research partnerships with companies such as BP, Total, Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO) and Takreer in the oil and gas sector. Each partnership enables Masdar Institute to contribute its research capabilities towards achieving sustainability in that particular sector.
